Elementary Uniform Policy

Students must wear uniforms daily unless you are notified in writing by the school.  Students will wear clothes to school that are comfortable and appropriate for the school environment.  Shorts may be worn in hot weather but the principal and teacher reserve the right to disapprove dress that attracts too much attention or is not appropriate.  Shorts, skirts and jumpers must be knee-length. 
Parents will be called to bring a change of clothing when dress is considered inappropriate.
Shirt colors are navy, white, and hunter green (green shirts have the Riverwood logo and are purchased from the school bookstore).  Pant colors are khaki and navy. Socks and tights should be white or navy. Jackets and sweaters worn during the school day inside the building should be uniform colors.   Students are not allowed to wear hats/caps in the building. The administrative rules and regulations state that shoes with rollers/wheels are prohibited.  For more information about the uniform policy check your Riverwood Handbook or contact the office.
